Well, it's been a journey.
I started this little madam of a project just after Christmas (I'm still pretty sure that was only yesterday) and it was a faithful friend through my commute, a holiday with the in-laws and a few knit club sessions. It's my first ever crochet garment and wasn't without its struggles. I had to fudge a lot of the stitch counts and came to the conclusion that even if the sleeves weren't right, if they at least matched it would all be okay. And it was, until it came to joining the sleeves into the yoke (gulp). The pattern became rather vague at this point. I read it over and over, decided that what I thought it could most logically mean, then I just had to go for it.
*Major props to my lovely knit club pals who scrutinised the pattern with me and helped me demystify it!*
